Fits 1973 to 1981 Chevrolet Camaro and 1970 to 1981 Pontiac Firebird. Compatible with GMTH350/400/700R4/4L60/4L60E/4L65E/4L80E/4L85E


Easy to use, clean good looks and dependable ratcheting design makes the Quicksilver one of our most popular shifters. This console model is designed for a perfect fit in the factory console of your 1973-81 Camaro or 1970-81 Firebird, and like all Quicksilver shifters, features a trigger-less shift handle design. When in Park, you simply lift the handle and pull back and let the handle drop once in or past Reverse. Once out of Park, there's no need to lift the handle to shift gears until you either need to access Reverse or Park. From Drive, just lift the handle straight up and this will bypass the reverse lockout safety feature, then move the shift handle forward into Reverse or Park. It's just that easy! Also, the reverse lockout feature meets NHRA and IHRA safety regulations and won't allow you to accidentally over shift into reverse while making a pass at the strip. To use the ratcheting function at the strip, shift into low gear, launch the vehicle and hit the shifter forward when it's time to shift. You cannot over-shift and miss a gear. The chrome bezel, shift stick, and knob are all accented by the black boot and deep blue medallion, giving your second-gen Camaro or Firebird interior that classic muscle car style, while providing fast and smooth ratchet shifting. The shifter includes a lighted gear position indicator in the bezel. Attaches to the factory shift cable and comes with all hardware, detailed instructions and everything needed for an easy installation you can do at home. Compatible with TH350, TH400, 700R4, 200R4, 4L60 transmissions right out of the box. Notes: 4L60E - 4L80E transmissions with PRNDL switch will require installation kit #75498 (without PRNDL switch use #35498) and B&M cable #80605.
